Femstock Celebrates Women’s Rights Victories


It has been nearly a century since one of the largest victories in the history of women’s rights: On June 4, 1919, the 19th Amendment was proposed by Congress, which would give women the right to vote the following year.

On June 4, 2017, The 8×10 in Baltimore will be hosting a benefit concert called Femstock, the proceeds of which will go to the Junior League of Baltimore, an educational charitable organization that promotes volunteerism, women’s potential and community improvement through action and leadership of trained volunteers.

The show’s bill features an all-star cast of local and regional women in music.

Performing will be Amanda Lynne, a Baltimore native known for her “commanding vocal presence,” according to event promoter Randy Harris of Ragin’ Randy Entertainment, who was featured in the JT earlier this year. Lynne has been a part of many local and regional bands throughout her career, and after the Freddie Gray riots of May 2015, she wrote “Charm City Blues,” her debut single.

Other acts include Gypsy Soul Revival, Suga Grits, the R.A.M. Band and Femstock Superjam. Tickets are $12 in advance, $14 at the door. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the music begins at 7. For more information, visit jlbalt.org
